How safe is it making a credit card donation through the "ways" mentioned on the "donation page" on the Archive?? Going to make a donation from my business but want to make sure it is very secure. Not familiar with pay-pal etc - usually do things by check. Let me know, thanks.
Or, would it be better for the LMA if i just have a check sent (lord knows, the fees on MC Visa Etc are steep)

I'm sure the CC system is as secure as any other online seller out there. However, I agree that sending a check is likely better - there might be fees related to Credit Card donations that reduce the useable amount for the organization. (I'm not sure if those get waived for non-profits like this). Plus, the check may be easier for you to use when tax time comes and you add up your deductions. :)

"Oh yeah, deduction for that check I sent to the archive!!"

Thanks for giving! Always very appreciated (and needed) by the organization. Every little bit helps. :)
